Spring 2012

Spring was an extremely warm season for the entire Northeast.

June first marks the end of climatological spring, the months of March, April and May. All of the First Order stations in the Northeast ranked in their top three warmest springs, 28 of the 35 had their warmest spring on record! Not only did the record breaking March contribute to this, but May was warm as well, with 32 of the First Order stations ranking in their top 10 warmest Mays. This warm trend has continued for over a year at 15 of the stations that have had at least 13 consecutive months of above normal temperatures. April dipped below normal for other stations, breaking the trend. Large waves in the jet stream have slowed down weather patterns, allowing warm air to dominate March and May.
